RISING WATER: DNR Evacuates Cabins


The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says it had to evacuate cabins at Pine Lake State Park near Eldora due to the rising Iowa River.

Authorities evacuated the four family cabins around 11:00 Wednesday night. The DNR says the move is just a precaution and as of now the park is still open.

Four other state parks are closed due to flooding: George Wythe State Park, Dolliver State Park, Walnut Woods State Park, and Backbone State Park.

Springbrook State Park and Rock Creek State Park were both re-opened Thursday.

The DNR says several weddings and graduation parties had to be moved last minute due to flooding.
